Located in a refurbished heritage building at 397 Railway Street, the Railtown Cafe has been trading now for just over a week, serving up delicious breakfast and lunch treats that are already attracting scores of local residents and businesses within the local area. The group is also devoted to sourcing everything locally wherever possible. This approach ranged from using only the freshest produce including the herbs grown onsite in the Patch Lab, but also to their decor, where they have utilized locally sourced reclaimed wood as dining tables.
Open 7am - 3pm, Monday to Friday the Railtown Cafe's breakfast offerings range from espresso coffees and juices and delicious pastries and bagels, but it is the lunch menu that is attracting most of the attention with their sintilating selection of salads and sandwiches.
These are not just any sandwiches mind you, but are served up with some of the finest fillings you will find anywhere in Vancouver, thanks largely to the sous-vide cooking technique utilized by the Bocuse D'Or chefs manning the Railtown Cafe kitchen.
